What do you think about the Trainers you're going to choose from?
What do you think of the other new characters, thier roles.
What do you think about the OW Sprites, battle sprites? Still the same?
Or did you think this is just the beta, and the game will change drastically?

They made a point to mention a Scientist that researches Strength? There must be something important there.

1. Plot Related

2. Mechanic Related

Maybe the scientist is part of the plot, or gives easier access to dream world abilities?

I think he is the most mysterious character revealed so far.

and Sailor Moon + Pokemon will (the girl MC) will break sales records! She is so awesome!

Perhaps he's the professor who hooks your character up with their stater. Though I have to admit, he does seem a bit menacing. That would be a nice plot twist, have an evil professor for a change.

As for the characters, i'm kinda neutral on the male. I don't like him nor do I hate him. He could always be the Diamond/Pearl protagonist, which is the worst case scenario here.
I absolutely love the female. I may actually play as a female character in a game for a change.

I like the female and the rival. The males kinda took a loss with this character. But not too really concerned with how he looks, just hope the game is amazing.

The girl eyes are quite anime like xD
She's third to May and Dawn for me.
The boy is alright, he's fourth behind Brandon, Red, and Hilbert...
As for the Rival...he looks cool, he gives off that same aura Green and Silver did...I hope he's just as if not more cool than those two.

The rival is pretty cool in my opinion, but my favorite has to be the Poison type gymleader(girl in the middle with the guitar) Not really a fan of the new professor he looks menacing , but that would be an interesting plot twist. As for the protagonist, I love the female over the male. Not sure if I which one I'm gonna choose. Though if all goes as I planned, I'll get both Black 2 and White 2 and the one I pick as my main game, I'll choose the female and the other will be the male.

That's what I was thought until I read the games are taking place only 2 years later. So it's not possible for Hilbert to have a child in that time even though teenagers have kids all the time


Edit:Hilda+Princess Leia+Sailor Moon =Female protagonist

If so, I would gladly pay any amount of Pokedollar to make that creature on his head go away.

I LOVE this male design more than Hilbert, and as for the female, yeah, she's better than Hilda. Omgomg I wonder what they'll be named. ;; Hopefully something better than Hilda/Hilbert or I will cry.

@ Forever Finally someone who also liles the male character.
We don't even know their japanese names xD. Maybe their english names will have to do with ice, or maybe balance to fit with Kyurem. Luke and Dawn were light, while Hilbert and Hilda were strength (huh the new profs topic...), maybe the will continue the strength theme.

I doubt that :( Those were fan-made as a rumour correct? I can't even remember, but I don't think they will since they'd much rather come up with their "better" names imo.

Hmmm, I still don't think they'll do them. Imo they'll do the double letter theme really, since to me it all seems to be opposites here.

The new character look pretty awesome, especially the rival. I'd rather have Prof Juniper back though.

It's like Hilda and Hilbert's caps withered to visors, and then their hair exploded.

I like the female player character, and I like the male's clothes. But that hair is awful, it's just a pile. And is he wearing like... Leggings underneath those shorts? Or is it some kind of scuba outfit? What if they're getting rid of surf and dive and letting our characters do that instead? That would be cool.

Rival looks awesome. I like his jacket and his hair. Looks like he might be kinda cocky, like someone said above, I hope he's a Blue/Silver sort of rival.

Also love the Poison Gym Leader, she looks really 80s. And the Water Leader looks pretty cool too.

All in all, pretty much enjoying the new character designs. If we could just cut the boy's hair. D;

Theory about the protags:

[17:13:16] <@ForeverAfraid> wait wait wait gu
[17:13:19] <@ForeverAfraid> ys
[17:13:31] <@ForeverAfraid> black and white anime is called "rival destinies"
[17:13:32] <gunnerpow7> what?
[17:13:34] <@ForeverAfraid> perhaps that relates to the games
[17:13:47] <@ForeverAfraid> aka, that b2w2 are opposite to bw, and that the rivals are travelling unova together
[17:13:54] <@ForeverAfraid> as in protag rivals

So like, instead of a Cheren/Bianca thing, you instead get your opposite protag travelling with you like they were sorta--no I'm probably reading into this too much, but I still think it's pretty likely. :x Dunno, I'd just like to see the other protag being involved in your journey. XD

It's all really exciting.

Judging by what route we'd have to take in order to travel the updated region, I presume that the two new gym leaders are going to replace the Striaton trio and Lenora.

Swimming seems to be the theme so far, aside from the funky water leader, the male protagonist appears to have a diving suit underneath his clothing and the female seems to also be wearing a swimsuit under her shirt

I wasn't as keen on the hair of the new Professor, but the absurdness of the style has grown on me in the past couple of hours. As for his role, I personally wouldn't mind for him to be the one who gives us our Pokedex/Starter. As for the suggestion that he's evil/suspicious I think it would be an interesting twist. I'd certainly be grateful for a Pokemon game with a starting professor who has a less linear and more impacting role within the main plot.

New protagonists have grown on me, the girl is brilliant, no complaints. I also like how her Xtransceiver appears to be yellow rather than the typical gender colour association. The male reminds me a lot of the HG/SS protagonist, his bag looks a little too big for him but I'm willing to overlook it. I'd perhaps like them more if they didn't look like complete Hilbert/Hilda revamps; I'd prefer them to look like completely new characters.
